We need your assistance!
Sousa concerts feature great music that are real crowd-pleasers, but that comes with a significant expense. We would greatly appreciate your financial support to assist us with expenses for the guest conductor, a special venue for the concert and related promotion. Your financial contribution is tax deductible and would enable us to provide this outstanding concert band programming to the greater Omaha community. Any donation amount will be accepted. Donations can be made directly to the Nebraska Wind Symphony.
